dodge power steering pump
ok, son is away at school. duluth, mn avg high temp is 15f or so. no garage. 160 miles away. 2k dakota. says power steering fluid is low. added 1/2qt and is low again 1 week later. says it appears to be wet around pump. pump was changed 3yrs ago. 4.7 motor. has plastic reservoir which has o-ring. remaned pump is $100. no resv though. used assy with resv is also $100. what is the route here? he is very busy at school. no time to come home. tell him to keep adding fluid til he has time? put used assy on in duluth, outside? new pump means i have to dig up a pulley puller. and than remount resv tank. no big deal. go for it. I don't want to pay a shop $$ to do it.
